I have used the product on 2 interview videos for corporate clients and it has performed fine. It comes down to the quality of mic you plug in.

Great Microphone Matching

This is a great way to use my pro level balanced mics on my computer or digital audio recorders and maintain the quality all the way through.

Great accessory

This works great with the shotgun mic. however, when it plugs into the shotgun AT897 mic it is a little loose. and i recommend getting a longer cord. This one is too short for my uses. I would recommend this to a friend.

nice!

I like the fact that it is no longer than it has to be. That keeps it clean looking and sounding!

I use this to connect my shotgun mic to my camcorder. It does exactly what it is supposed do do. The cable length is short but I wouldn't want it to be any longer hanging around my camera it would get in the way. Seems like the XLR end could fit a bit tighter, but that might not be the cables fault.

Great Product

Does exactly what I need. I use it to connect my Rode NTG2 to my HV30.

Just what I needed, for now

This is about as compact as you can get. I needed a cable to use my Azden shotgun mic with my Canon HV20 camcorder, and the B&H rep suggested the Hosa. It works fine... I am no audio pro, but I have found no problems with the cable. I ended up using a bracket to raise my Azden up by 4, and the cable is JUST long enough to reach the mic input on the camera. Being a newbie to external mics, I now realize I need a longer cable for boom pole or mic stand use.

Shooting multi-cam videos with up to three cameras requires a reliable source for quality sound. Connecting the MIT-156 Matching Transformer to my Audio-Technia shotgun mikes ensures that the sound I wed to the DV tape is comparably matched. To date, Hosa Technology has not failed to deliver the wide spectrum of audio from the sources to the media that my customers expect. This is a 100% improvement over the non-transformer cables that I previously used. I'm thoroughly satisfied with the results I get from the MIT-156 cables.

Can you use this from a mono LINE-LEVEL output of a mixing board and into a portable audio recorder? Or would you also need an attenuator in between?
